The first baby with a fully sequenced genome was born in Philadelphia on 18 May 2013. A new in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) technique including DNA sequencing "allows future parents to chose the embryo with the lowest risk of genetic anomalies", hence the title of the Point.fr article, "Connor, the first baby with perfect genes".
However, the use of this kind of technique is not without concerns. During DNA sequencing, the University of Oxford team investigated chromosomal anomalies such as Downs syndrome and even Turner Syndrome. Although this practice is controlled in Great Britain, it may, in view of the facts, give rise to several derivatives, as confirmed by researcher Dagan Wells involved in this sequencing method from the outset: "It is […] possible to investigate an unparalleled amount of embryo-related information before transferring it to the uterus".
